INFSCI 1040 INTRODUCTION TO DATA ANALYTICS (replaced by INFSCI 1530, effective Fall 2020)

Description

Minimum Credits: 3
Maximum Credits: 3
The ability to collect, store and process large amounts of detailed data in a variety of fields has led to a surge in the use of data in various decision-making tasks, ranging from governmental policy-making to drafting players in sports. Data literacy is thus important and in this first introductory course, we will focus on shifting the traditional mode of deterministic (yes/no) thinking to probabilistic thinking. We will see concepts from applied probability and statistics, while we will also explore a variety of data analysis methods including linear regression, matrix factorization, and network analysis.
